Criminal acts to be legalized by vote
Dear Friends,
What's next? Speech against "a woman's right to choose" is illegal? If this hate crimes bill passes, the pro-life community may be the next one silenced. No more prayer outside the abortion centers. No more reaching out with compassion and hope to mothers. No more speaking out against abortion at all. Anywhere. Please call your U.S. Senators and ask them to vote against the hate crimes bill. Read on to learn the effects of this bill. God bless, JA



Action Alert

U.S. Senate set to effectively endorse deviant and criminal behaviors under hate crimes amendment

In a shameless act, Senators Gordon Smith (R-OR) and Ted Kennedy (D-MA) filed the anti-Christian "hate crimes" legislation as an amendment to the Department of Defense Reauthorization Bill. This bill is currently being debated in the U.S. Senate and a vote could come as early as Friday July 13th or next week.

This amendment makes sexual orientation a protected class yet, sexual orientation is not defined either in this legislation, or in federal law generally.

What Are The Effects of the So-Called Hates Crimes Amendment?

This so-called "hate crimes" amendment will make 30 sexual orientations: http://www.traditionalvalues.org/pdf_files/SexualOrientationsDSMRev.pdf into federally-protected minority groups! The American Psychiatric Association (APA) has published 30 such sexual orientations that, because of Congress's failure to define "sexual orientation," will arguably be protected under this legislation. These 30 orientations are listed in the APA's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV), which is used by physicians, psychologists, social workers, nurses, and psychiatrists throughout the U.S. It is considered the dictionary of mental disorders. Those 30 sexual orientations include behaviors that are felonies or misdemeanors in most states or can result in death.

Serious Threat to Religious Liberties. This language begins to lay the legal foundation and framework to investigate, prosecute and persecute pastors, business owners, and anyone else whose actions are based upon and reflect the truths found in the Bible.

So-called "hate speech" which could include a pastor's sermon, an author, citizen activist who writes a letter to the editor, or individual speech against homosexual behaviors, could become the target of zealous pro-homosexual federal prosecutors!

During the House Committee debate, Representative Artur Davis admitted that the "hate-crimes" bill could be used to prosecute pastors for their sermons if they incite or are an "inducement" to violence.

H.R. 1592 is based upon a false premise: That there's an epidemic of so-called "hate crimes" against homosexuals and drag queens that needs federal involvement for local law enforcement officials!

Immediate Action is needed: Contact your (2) U.S. Senators and tell them to oppose the so-called hate crimes amendment to the Department of Defense Reauthorization Bill. because:

Congress's refusal to define "sexual orientation" creates the prospect of legal protection for every form of sexual perversion recognized by the psychiatric profession. By its silence, Congress is effectively endorsing such deviant and criminal behaviors as beastiality, pedophilia, and necrophilia as "sexual orientations" protected by federal law.

It lays the legal foundation and framework to investigate, prosecute and persecute pastors, business owners, and anyone else whose actions are based upon and reflect the truths found in the Bible.
